“A challenging trip undertaken on one of Australia's most difficult Outback roads would have been intriguing enough; but add the scenario of two men finding themselves and each other and a question about their ultimate survival for a passionate story . . . highly recommended for any fan of gay fiction who seeks an inviting, engrossing adventure read replete with the realistic sounds, scenes, and culture of Australia and its Outback.”
–Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Stricken by a devastating tragedy, Jacob, a hunky young businessman, impulsively decides to end his life in the remote Australian Outback. Everything is going according to plan—until he meets William, a sexy, good-hearted young guy. Having been jilted by his lover right before the trip, William is stuck alone with a huge, rented four-wheel-drive RV, and he invites Jacob to join him on a trip from Darwin to Broom. Despite his own dark plan, Jacob agrees.
On their adventurous journey through the northern Australian wilderness, William and Jacob come upon the unique Outback characters, deadly animals, and magical places sacred to the Aboriginal people. Each man carries his own secret, and each is struggling to understand his own life and where their extraordinary and often tumultuous relationship is taking them.
Is William strong enough to help Jacob face his demons and to accept the dark gift that his ex-boyfriend left him? Or will Alex, a lonely Outback hunk, break William and Jacob’s developing bond and turn the breathtaking red land of snakes, crocodiles, and kangaroos into the background for a disaster?
Steamy at times, Gibb River Road is an emotionally immersive M/M road romance that will capture your heart.
